CRS-14 on its way to ISS
Dragon nosecone falls away.
Dragon separation! Note experiments in the trunk.
This is the 16th Dragon 1 flight. The capsule is C110, previously flown on the CRS-8 mission. The trunk and nose cap are, as usual, new.
And that’s mission success for Falcon. Dragon has some work ahead however.
